Massage Therapist Training
~ Ten Day Intensive ~
with Antar Rasal
Bio Dynamic Rebalancing is a meditative and therapeutic Myo Fascial release bodywork consisting of gentle and precise massage strokes, structural integration techniques, joint mobilization techniques, and assisted (Yoga) stretches to restore an ideal balance/alignment of the body, mind and psyche.
An inner journey to become a professional masseur
A ten day (60 hrs) intensive training to become a certified Massage Therapist in Bio Dynamic Rebalancing. A technique that originates from Osho Rebalancing and helps people come back into a natural balance to again enjoy the essential unity of body, mind and soul. Course leader Rasal has more than 25 years of bodywork experience and a training teacher.
The training gives a deep understanding of the magic and mysteries of the body, as well as the physical and emotional holding patterns that keep us from enjoying a natural, balanced life. It is for everyone who is interested in transformative bodywork, and especially for those who would like to become a practitioner and make massage and bodywork a part of their profession.
This course is for you who:
- would like to explore conscious touch and skillful massage
- are interested in a professional career as masseurs,
- bodyworkers, therapists or trainers who wish to expand their skills and deepen their experience
- wish to develop your intuition and body awareness
- want to understand pain and stress in the body-mind structure and re-discover the ways of releasing and transforming them.
- wishes to develop and feel more love and consciousness through the wisdom of the body, simultaneously learning basic methods to offer exquisite and effective massage sessions. It’s a great opportunity as well for every body-oriented, (spiritual) practitioner / therapist to expand and enhance ones knowledge and skills.
Osho, the self realized Sufi, Tantra, and Zen mystic, founded the original “Rebalancing”. The technique evolved into a thorough and respected therapeutic and spiritual bodywork practiced worldwide.
Today, Bio Dynamic Rebalancing is a direct successor of Osho’s therapy. It is a meditative and therapeutic Myo Fascial release bodywork, consisting of gentle, precise massage strokes, deep tissue strokes, joint mobilization techniques, and assisted yoga stretches to restore an ideal alignment of body, mind and psyche. We’ll use the most precious
methods from Rebalancing, Rolfing, Shiatsu, Tragering (jointrelease), Postural Integration, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, and more.
-Rasal is a clear and focused teacher, very passionate about this body work. He creates a very allowing space, inspiring us to go deep. Not only in giving massage, but also in receiving it. I experienced some profound physical and emotional release. – I recommend this training to anyone who is interested in body work, regardless of whether you would like to become an actual massage therapist. – Merete

Warmly welcome to Massage Therapist Training at Ängsbacka!
I am a well experienced, skillful bodywork therapist/trainer from the Netherlands and practise/teach mainly in Germany, Greece, Turkey, Russia and India. I received my training in Rebalancing in 1990 by Deva Satyarthi, Anubuddha, and Rakesh in the Osho Meditation Resort Pune, India. Then assisted and facilitated many other bodywork trainings in the years after. I am also trained in Primal Therapy, ‘Zen’ in the art of therapy, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, Core Integration, and two ‘Diamond Breath’ therapy trainings.
I am fascinated beyond measure with this ‘mysterious materialized energy’ or “body-mind-heart” phenomenon known as “the human body”, temple of our soul. The body is a micro-cosmos in itself, and its capacities to balance and heal itself are simply miraculous. I do consider myself gifted and fortunate to be able to support and assist people on their life journey towards optimal health, the awakening of love & consciousness, and perhaps finally towards enlightenment and ultimate freedom.
